I doubt the booklet took even an hour to read, but then I wasn't looking to dedicate my life to the study of Zettelkasten, but rather get on and implement it!
One thing that did tickle me was David's insistence - although he qualifies that his view is (very) subjective - that Zettelkasten note-taking is only of use if you're a writer.
David is obviously a writer...
I'd offer that Zettelkasten is priceless for
> professional headhunters
> inventors / creators (all genres)
and many, many more professional and personal areas of focus.
If you want a genuinely informative, easy-to-read (and digest) introduction that will help you become more concise and efficient in your note-taking and information retrieval, I am perfectly confident in recommending this booklet.
The book presents a particular system, devised in Germany many years ago as a card based system, but which adapts well to digital tools. The exposition is more about principles and ideas than the specifics.
I found it useful. A quick read.
I paid $2.99 Canadian and got about that much value. It gets a Meh from me.
What I liked:
- David gets to the point
- He avoids the dogmatic discussion that many people get stuck in around Zettel Ids and repeating what worked in one paper based system several decades ago
- He provides several tips that I hadn't seen before on upkeep
What he could improve to get five stars
- More examples - seriously the book could contain many more examples
- More meat in the chapters that actually discuss the using/building a Zettelkasten
- He says he can only imagine it being used as a writing tool. Then he should research other reasons people use Zettelkasten
- Help people new to the idea of Zettelkasten understand more deeply what is and why it works
It is a very practical guide and, as clearly explained at the beginning of the book, the author's vision and practical conclusions of his implementation process.
Here is a short tour of what you can find in the book.
*Understand the concept*
At the beginning of the book, Kadavy works on your understanding of what a Zettelkasten is about and the purpose and benefits of having one, without the need to go super deep into it.
This is a short read, so he does not spend more pages than it is needed for you to evaluate if the method looks like a good idea for you and, at least, you see what the concept is.
Although there is some background explained, you will not find a super detailed theoretical description of the method or the history and implementation of Niklas Luhmann. There are other great books for this and like the one by Sönke Ahrens and, by the way, David does great mentioning his references in his book.
*How to structure it*
You are moved then into the understanding of how a Zettelkasten is practically structured inside. David calls this "Anatomy of a Zettelkasten".
There is the understanding of the differences between different types of notes, folders (with a personal addition he borrowed from another method), how can you create notes, what is worth writing down and what is not ... etc
*How should I ...?*
Do I use tags or folders?
How am I supposed to name the files?
How do you make connections between notes in a digital Zettelkasten?
Those and several other questions come to you after you read and start trying to make your Zettelkasten a reality. David has you covered there. He arrived at his conclusions and shares them. So this can be, at least, a starting point for your's one.
*How to engage with your Zettelkasten a get benefit from it*
You will also find covered in the book the approach that the author uses for creating notes, linking them and different engagement ideas based on context.
Because one thing is knowing what a Zettelkasten and a very different one start using it. Learn how to keep some rituals to keep it rolling, how to put notes together for creating and much more.
*It is all digital*
One of the most crucial points is that David looks at every point from the perspective that you are developing a Zettelkasten in the XXI century in a highly technical context.
Therefore, and because he especially talks about his setup, the whole book focuses on solving the problems you face when you start going from theory and understanding to which tool should I use, how am I going to keep it synchronized, which parts of the orthodox method can be a limit or unnecessary if I go digital, local, how do I format my notes in a digital tool...
*Is it for you?*
You need to evaluate.
It will not be for you, in my opinion, if you already have a Zettelkasten up and running, you already understand the engagement process or even already use it for creating new content. In those cases, I think it is not the purpose of the book to go deeper and therefore will get less out of it.
If you are just starting the journey or curious about the topic, I'd say it is. Combine it with "How to take Smart Notes" and you will have a super good overview of the topic.
